Nana Diana Takes A Break

Once Upon A School Day 2014

Once upon a time there were
Three Little Girls.
The three little girls woke up 
one morning to find that 
SUMMER WAS OVER
and
SCHOOL was starting.

They gathered their supplies,
ate their breakfast,
and arrived at the schoolyard.

There the Royal Princess
waved her magic wand and demanded that
her loyal subject tie her shoes
before she tripped.

Nana came along with her camera.
Nana DID NOT KNOW
that she was going to have
HER PICTURE taken.

Thus she had only pulled part of 
HER HAIR back and had
NO MAKEUP on!
It was NOT Nana's best look
but she grumblingly graciously had her
picture taken with 
SweetCheeks.
Yes- My hair is completely white now~
Thanks for asking!
Keep blogging- it will happen to 
YOU too!

The three little girls,
SweetCheeks, Ria & Lulu,
smiled for the camera.

They each found a friend.
Lulu found her sweet girlfriend, Anika.
Ria found her sweet friend, Livvy.
And SweetCheeks found her girl boy friend.
WHAT?
Is that a parachute he has strapped on in case
he needs to get away from her?

Then, the school bell rang 
and the three little girls
  filed into their school
and Mama & Nana 
cheered and hooted and hollered and 
went to get coffee
went sadly on their way.

The End

Working on a big project so I
may not be around for a couple of days.
Bear with me!

  13. Oh, my! How those girls have grown and changed over the summer! As to the hair - I feel as though I've been totally white longer than I was any other shade at this point!:-) You are beautiful! xo Nellie

  14. They have changed so much in the last year! Love those sweet faces.
    And speaking of sweet faces, you are radiant.
    xo, T.

  15. I'm so glad they attend a Christian school. I think all of those back to school pictures I see on facebook are depressing. Sweet little children going off to be indoctrinated by a government we can no longer trust. People forget that public schools are government schools. :-( I'm so glad your sweet girls will learn about Jesus and be taught Christian values.

  16. Hi Diana, wow where did the summer go! Your grandkids are so precious and adorable and look so happy. I'm a little sad that the summer vacation went by so fast as my daughter started her first day of high school today! Take care and see you soon.

  17. Oh your G.Children have grown up so quickly since summer. Tall and prettier, prettier. . My children also attended a Christian school. They were not a number there but
    people who needed tender loving care and time from the teachers and small classes. I am glad we did that.

    You are beautiful. Not everyone can wear long hair and look young still but you sure can and you look great. I know there will be a time when I wont cover help from the box. So far just some grays here and there. I am truly waiting for the white to take over. I do not like the grey mousy look. I want your white if it comes. I'll throw my color away.

  19. What beautiful photos of the girls and their friends! School started back August 7th, here; it's still so hot and humid. Glad to see your sweet post pop up in my email again! Welcome back and I hope the girls have a fabulous school year! Oh my goodness, I wish I looked as good as you do with no makeup; what a great photo of you and Sweet Cheeks!

  20. Gorgeous~ them and you! I sent mine off this morning, too...last night, I was thrilled at the prospect of a little quiet time, but now I just miss my lunch buddies! ;( I'm sure I will be cured again by dinner!! ;)

  29. Such beautiful girls. They sure are growing up. I love that picture of you with the Princess. Your hair is beautiful. I like it white. Of course, I would. I could never wear mine that long and it look like that. Beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh my gosh - LOL! There's always a cute little twist or a funny little turn here and there as I read along. Love it! ALL of these lovely young ladies (and that includes the one with the white hair too my dear!) - and the boy! - are so beautiful and just radiate the excitement of a new school year! I'll be patient while you finish up "one more thing" - but gosh it's fun having you back! - like opening up a heavy drape and letting the sunshine pour in again!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh, too cute! Now those are some sweet, sweet smiles and I do think yours was the sweetest! I always looked forward to that first day of school - ah! the freedom! And then an hour later I would get really lonely and guilty - it was like a roller coaster of emotions, but when they came home squabbling and crabby, I pulled myself together really fast and decided to go with being relieved :) Wish my hair would turn that beautiful white - mine is just steely gray, so Miss Clairol is still my best friend. xo Karen

  46. The beginning of another year. They sure grew over the summer. Just be glad you have hair. I just bought two wigs and they are gray. I kept trying the brown but it just didn't work. Once again I am not getting your posts through email. That means I have to trust my brain. Usually not a good thing.

  59. Diana, I squealed when I saw a post from you in my reader! Yes, I really did :) I somehow missed your Labor Day post probably because I wasn't on the computer that day. Anyway, it's so, so, so, so nice to visit you! You have been missed, dear lady.

    Thinking of you and wishing you a beautiful day. Hugs!

  60. So glad the girls off to a good start the first day of school. That Ria's smile sure is heartwarming.

  61. Oh you've no idea how happy I was when I saw your post!!! So glad you're back on blogland, Diana! Adorable pics of the girls as usual - and of you and Sweetcheeks. My hair was all white too until a few days ago. When I told her I wanted 'low lights,' I think she thought I said, 'Lights Out.' Oh well, it will fade rapidly. lol

    ReplyDelete
  62. School was never pleasant experience for me, those nums were always beating us up!!!!! But I am glad the girls got off to a good start on their first day of school. My Mom had to carry me to the school bus kicking and screaming! So glad you're back!

    ReplyDelete

    The girls look so happy going back to school to meet their old friends again; so much to tell and to share.
